I have decent evidence.  All of the reports are from XPS 15 9550 or
Precision 5510, and Dell confirmed that they're basically the same
machine and run literally the same BIOS.  One of these reports is from
a device with exactly the same model and firmware as my SSD, and mine
is fine.  (I have a different laptop.)

I'd be fine with doing that for 4.11 and then doing this for 4.12-rc1.
